Riding buddies from UK - Spain for HU meeting !

I'm thinking about attending the HU meeting in Malaga, Spain this year.

Meeting date is Friday 11th September - Sunday 13th September.

I'm going to get the ferrry from Portsmouth to Sandander (Northern Spain).

I'll probably get the ferry 2-3 days before the meeting leaving a lesuirely ride down there, although I've not booked anything yet.

Ferry cost is £157 single.... I might stay out in Spain for the winter so I've not priced up a return ticket.

I'm happy for anyone to tag along. I might be going over with someone else but most likely alone.

Most people change their thread subscriptions so you get an email whenever somebody posts on it. It's in the user options.

I can get your email if thats easier for you..
